the islamists that confronting america. americans which not have what washington called her right understanding of the threats from the persian gulf region. in my writings i sat to acquaint americans at the nature of these threats called in from iran and its coreligionists in iraq and lebanon, the vicious martial, anti-christian, anti-jewish and anti-western branch of islamic theology exported under saudi arabia official imprimatur for the forces of osama bin laden, al qaeda and other sunni islamists lead essay. i also argue that the united states government under both parties is fighting an islamist enemy that does not exist and therefore policies ran counter towards american tradition and so too is best interests. official washington's islamic enemy is that the hollywood fires. if a shia or sunni, the islamists are in limited panda fanatic nihilists, ready to kill widely and indiscriminately for the pure joy of murdering and sacrificed their lives because my doctors go to university, iowans hold early presidential primaries every four years and because i come and make us forgive me have one o
america -- not only american but world history in an important way when he came to office, the general feeling among so-called experts was that our economic best days were behind us, that we were not going to see low inflation, economic growth ever again in fact, reagan's policies helped usher in a period of 2 a years where we had almost all the time low inflation, economic growth. of course, on the world scene, reagan continued in the tradition not only of republican presidents but of democratic presidents like franklin roosevelt and john kennedy of trying to spread freedom of democracy and the world and standing up against totalitarian forces. and within months, after he left office, that berlin wall came down as he asked it to do out there in the brandenberg gate and the soviet union soon ceased to exist. communism lost its hold on eastern europe. so that was a very low blood shed triumph for the united states and for freedom of democracy. that's a pretty strong record. >> eric: at the sameat the samee had unemployment rate 1982 was bigger than today was 10.8%. so he had troubles. i
the islamic republic of iran and the i am innocent threat it poses to america and the rest of the -- and the imminent threat it poses to america and the rest of the world. the regime is condemning the film. the controversial documentary that exposes the alarming truth about the islamic republic's nuclear program is now showing in select theaters across the u.s.. joining me the film's producer and middle east expert on terrorism and the author of the coming revolution, struggle for freedom in the middle east also fee ared in the film, walid phares is with us. we are going to show in-depth clips tonight. how dangerous is an iranian armed -- iran armed with nuclear weapons, how dangerous is this? >> planet will move into a different history. this will be the first time a regime that accepts and support suicide bombing, will have a large sized nuclear bomb. the chanting in iran since 1979 until now has been death to america. that along will tell you. >> until now iran has used every means at theirs disposal to attack iran. they used whatever vehicle they have. if they have nucl
beautiful places on our -- earth that this 34th america's cup could possibly be. when you look out today, you'll get a glimpse of what millions of other people and viewers and visitors will see in 2013. my first thought was to let you know that this was a very high priority for me. many of you know i was not here december 31, so i have been looking for the unopened champagne bottle that was supposed to be left in room 200. maybe it is in some supervisor's office, but there has got to be one unopened bottle there to celebrate because knowing that this is coming -- on december 31, it was a culmination of what i saw was a whirl wind, a solid year of activity. ever since the cut was one in february and the immediate negotiations that gavin newsom and others had started, culminating in the negotiations and certainly working very closely with our board of supervisors to make the very best deals that we could possibly have for our citizenry and for our visitors and for the city, and that culminating in -- on december 31, when i was not here, by the way, as you know, but yet, still celebra
saw in wisconsin and across the country this weekend, protests are now here in america as well. so the media has a little catching up to do. but they are missing the key >> gretchen: that is stirring the pot. a common goal of ending the western way of life. you and your neighbors must not miss what the media is, they are missing who is organizing all of the american dream rallies that happened over the weekend. who did the unions go to to be able to file permits to get the places to have these rallies,? you will not believe it. we'll tell you in a minute, come on. >> hello, america. the violence is spreading like wild fire. bahrain saw tens of thousands rally and promise to continue until they see a successful revolution. it is the home of our fith fleet. libya is most on fire. hundreds of thousands of fled to egypt and tunisia to escape the fighting. our war ships are on the way. rebels have control of most of the country except for the capitol compound. protestors flash with the antiprotestors took to the streets including the heavily fortified green zone. 12 civilians died and m
is that what america says and does matters as much or more as every other country in the world. what's happened to american power is just part of what's happened to power in the world everywhere. its become less concentrated and more defused. that makes it harder for america to get what it's seeking, but it doesn't affect the fact that america has the job of being a global leader, of sitting at the center of the system hopefully helping promote peace and prosperity, uh, generally. it just has to do, work a lot smarter and, uh, be less self absorbed, less self righteous and, uh, more self aware, more engaged. and what i think, to be effective, that we're gonna find is that as the world shrinks and becomes more interdependent, america can't stand above and apart. it, it has to be in there, uh, you know, with its, with its sleeves rolled up. >> richard gowen, you've indicated that you think u.s. power is in decline. >> i agree with a lot of what david just said, and i think two or three years ago before the financial crisis, i would have agreed 100%, but not anymore. i think the financial crisis h
it is one of my top priorities. i have said that to a number of you earlier, that the america's cup, to get it started, would be very important to me. so today, not only do we have the various speakers here, but it is the beginning of the execution on the promise of a world-class event being hosted here in san francisco, and i want to let you know that my very first thought was -- "who is on this team? who is coming together to help me execute this thing? am i going to have to go it alone? of course not. there are thousands of people. the whole city, the work force, they are all very excited. certainly, the port is, but i wanted to let you know that the very first directive that i have issued -- and i'm not so sure i have to issue such a directive, but it is just a format, a way in which we operate to make sure everybody is on the same page. and my good friend, lt. governor newsom, is out there as well. he knows a lot more details about this, but we have been in many of his previous pronouncements where, "how are you going to implement this? how are you going to get this done?" we are going
are not just manufacturing computer chips. they are showing us how america will win the future. for decades, intel has led the world in developing new technology. but even as global competition has intensified, this company has invested, built, and hired here in america. 3/4 of intel products are made by american workers. as the company expands in oregon and arizona, they plan to hire another 4000 people this year. companies like intel are proving that we can compete, that instead of just being the nation that buys what is made overseas, which can make things in america and seldom around the globe. winning this competition depends upon the ingenuity of our private sector, which was on display in our visit today. it will also depend on what we do as a nation to make america the best place on earth to do business. over the next 10 years, over half of all new jobs will require education beyond high school. many require proficiency in math and science. we have fallen behind in math, science, and graduation rates. as a result, companies like intel struggle to hire american workers with the skill

point of the america's cup event as part of the america's cup village. we already conducted a solicitation process consistent with the administrative code. we will talk a little bit about that process. we think there are additional cost savings associated with combining the work associated with the america's cup and the pier 27 cruise terminal. both analyses will rely on underlying studies that should be performed once, looking at both projects together from a cumulative impact perspective. there are potential savings of up to several hundred thousand dollars associated with that combining of the work. in addition, the ordinance would permit state and federal permiting to be folded into this scope of work. port and the city will have to do outreach for a variety of agencies that have purview over the bay. army corps of engineers, noah, the regional quality control board, through this process, they will make sure we are using best practices to approach any construction activities and that we are avoiding any significant impact. with that, i would like to offer edgar to talk a
that the next big bet is discovered, here in the united states of america. i have talked about the need to invest in high-speed rail, high- speed internet, so that companies can move goods and information faster than ever. this week, i will talk about the need to invest in education, in places like brookeville, so that every american is equipped to compete with anybody else in the world. these investments are an essential part of my budget. if we out build and out in debate, out educate, as well as out hostile the rest of the world, the jobs of our industry and time will take root, here in the u.s. our people will prosper and our country will succeed. but i am also convinced the only way we can make these investments in our future is if our board the start to live within its means. we start taking responsibility for our deficits. that is why, when i was sworn in as president, i pledged to cut the deficit in half by the end of my first term. if the budget i am proposing today meets that pledge and puts us on a path to pay for what we spend by the middle of the decade. we do this, in part
for the future. and in any great city, and this is the greatest city of america, new york, these are profound questions we've got to think about. the good news and bad news about globalization is this: the difficult news for america and for europe to accept is that for the first time in 200 years of industrial history, for the first time, for the first time even going through wars and depressions and wars again we have now reached a position where for the first time europe and america together are being outproduced by the rest of the world, particularly asia, outmanufactured, outexported, outinvested by these countries. and it was hardly surprising that at some point europe and america, 10% of the world's population, would stop being the continents that would produce more than 50% of the world's goods and 50% of the world's manufacturers and 50% of the world's exports. and if you thought of that as a single factor, this massive change, this restructuring of the world's economy that's taking place, you would probably be worried about the security of your job and the security of your children a
library. c-span, washington your way. created by america's cable companies. >> syndicated columnist and rate -- radio talk show host, herman cain said he is still in exploratory mode for running for president in 2012. he spoke at a lincoln dinner. this is about one hour. [captioning performed by national captioning institute] [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2010] >> i am not officially in exploratory mode. i am the first, foremost exploratory presidential candidate here. the others are getting all of this press and they haven't declared anything. i am not a declared candidate, i have to say that, but i have put together my formal exploratory committee and it is going great. this is my fifth time here. i love coming here. i have got people working, lining up meetings for me in south carolina. vigil lyonnais strategy, i knew that was dead on arrival. how can you ignore the early primary states and think you're going to go to florida, the waters are going to part in your going to get the nomination. i think he did it that way because he might not have really cared if

be no mess up in teaching the process so the net effect is san francisco and america's cup is in full compliance. it is a big role of the dice, one that i co-sponsored and am willing to make happen, but i want to hear more about the fact that we're not just gambling on this idea that san francisco along the way, because we sold- sourced, somehow we decide we have to cut corners. i want to hear more on that. >> sure. i think that our recommendation to the committee -- and i thank you for your cosponsor ship on this ordinance -- is that getting the city ceqa and permiting team on board now, we will be able to do robust analysis that i know that you and others have been looking to make sure that the city is thinking through all of the potential impacts. as edgar mentioned, we did go through this competitive selection process. we found esa of the respondents the most qualified because they have done analysis of the waterfront land use plan. they have done marina analysis. they completed the problematic eir review for the water system improvement project for the public utilities commission
the violence, but what more can it do? we will be looking at america's options. >> good afternoon from cairo. the situation has completely changed. what began as a popular uprising has now turned into an ugly and menacing standoff between rival groups. some five people were killed overnight in clashes in liberation square. at least eight hundred were injured. the new prime minister of the country has gone on national tv and he is apologizing for the violence. he has denied the government is involved. i can tell you that as i move across the city today, there were plenty of signs that supporters of the president were in fact moving toward the city center. in fact, moving around the city is like running the gauntlet. many people will tell you that the government is giving license to its supporters. many of them are armed with sticks or knives and a few with guns. they have been given license to create this situation in which the government can turn around and say it is the only guarantor of law and order. our first report is from humphrey huxley. >> the violence did not let up overnight, makin
in virginia but rather than be held in jail and deported, he was released back into the streets of america. because his illegal status was not discovered by a computer system. one month later salvador raped an innocent 8-year-old girl. disgusting crime would have been prevented if we really secured our borders, that we deport criminal aliens, and kept them from returning to the united states. tell the parents of this 8-year-old girl that our border security plan is working. that's just the way it is. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. are there further one-minute requests? under the speaker's announced policy of january 5, 2011, the gentleman from california, mr. garamendi, is recognized for 60 minutes as the designee of the minority leader. the gentleman is recognized. mr. garamendi: thank you, mr. speaker. today i rise to discuss what's on every american's mind and that is a job. my own family, they are thinking constantly about will they be able to keep their job, what's going to happen in the school system? are there going to be layoffs? i know in
of a stunning rejection of a leftist political philosophy that's profoundly at odds with america's founding principles and our history of democratic self-government and entrepreneurial capitalism. for two years the obama administration tand democrat congress pursued an agenda of every frustrated liberal at the expense of the public good and contrary to the will of the people. when america needed a growth strategy to revive our session-racked economy, the obama administration and the pelosi-reid congress gave us a $1 trillion stimulus bill that only stimulated more government. as unemployment soared to 10%, america needed and called for policies that would spur job creation. instead of focusing on jobs, the obama administration and its democrat congress spent a year concocketting a government-run health care system, one that stifles job creation as well as drives up the cost of health care. at a time when we desperately needed incentives to create new jobs, president obama and his congressional allies tried to impose the biggest tax increase in american history on small business owners by le
scenario for being able to start fresh and bid a new the america's cup ceqa work -- we are able to hit the ground running now. the goal is to finalize what is called the first step in the process, the project description. regular meetings with port and city staff and the america's cup event authority and race management to develop a detailed project description describing all the activities on the different areas along the waterfront and the parks, and estimating the number of people that would be using those areas, thinking through all the construction activities, and the goal would be very shortly to publish that project description as something called an n.o.p., a notice of preparation of an environmental impact report. that will happen in february as we meet the current timeline. following the notice of preparation, there will be public scoping meetings. this goes to your point, supervisor mirkarimi. we have such great public interest in the america's cup. there's concern that we go about its the right way. supervisor mirkarimi: on that point, relative to us shortening the solicita
soon. thank you. >>> and as chris knows, the debate, the contest about who will get america's limited resources spreads far beyond wisconsin, including to the doorstep of a tough-talking governor back east who said he will not back down. here's sharyn alfonsi. >> reporter: in new jersey, governor chris christie booed by firefighters. after suggesting the retirement age had to be raised. and that pension plans had to be cut. >> promised you benefits that they had no way of paying for. >> reporter: new jersey facing an $11 billion deficit this year -- >> 50 times three is -- >> reporter: in new york, mayor bloomberg threatened to cut teachers jobs because of a loss in state funding. >> i don't think we can afford to lose any teachers. but if we have to do, we'll have to do with 6,000 fewer. >> reporter: most states, unlike the federal government, have to balance their budget every year. 2012 is shaping up to be one of the most difficult on record. 48 states and the district of columbia are projecting short falls. totalling $125 billion. federal assistance is largely gone. so legislators
that the wave of unrest in the middle east will spread to europe and then to america. the "associated press" is reporting "the tone of the remark seemed to be by the belief of the muslims that the 12th imam will reappear." ahmadinejad said there was a need for a new system of rule. he wanted to make sure that worldwide oppression stops. so someone from extreme islam wants unrest to spread throughout europe and eventually america. they are waiting for 12th imam. that is so strange because i know i heard that information some place before. in greece, they saw more violence today this time 60,000 people hit the streets and attacked police. one officer was set on fire by a gas bomb. one man was arrested carrying an archer's bow and arrows, as well as an axe. they were also screaming about the rich. from the u.k. on february 26, remember this date. february 26. there is a national day of action to protest. this is in the u.k. led by a radical group called u.k. uncut. i'm sure it's a coincidence but in america there is also a day of action. protests scheduled on of all days february 26. what a co
